Located 6.5 km south east of the centre of the City of Busselton, the Busselton Margaret River Airport is situated in the heart of Western Australia's South West.

Positioned only 6.8km from the Busselton city centre, 30 minutes from City Bunbury and a 45 minute drive from Margaret River, the airport is easily accessible.

The South West region is famed for its extensive coastline of pristine beaches, award winning fine wines and production of high quality dairy products, meat, seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables and truffles. It is Western Australia’s premier events and leisure tourism destination and a significant centre for high value, technology-based industries including a variety of creative industries.

In 2017 significant upgrades were made to the aviation infrastructure to directly connect the region with future destinations including Melbourne, Sydney, Denpasar and Singapore.
